Welcome back for the
2022-2023 school year!
What We Do
SUNY Plattsburgh’s Shine On! program is a preventive program designed to increase resiliency, self-esteem and confidence in elementary-school children, aiming to reduce negative mental health issues before they reach middle school. Our three pillars are instilling and building the seven character strengths, providing young kids with a toolbox of upstander communication skills, and teaching media and marketing literacy.
"We support an inclusive environment where diversity and individual differences are understood, respected, appreciated, and recognized as a source of strength. We expect everyone involved in Shine On! will respect differences and demonstrate diligence in understanding how other peoples' perspectives, behaviors, and worldviews may be different from their own."
